Here's some more cool news from the New York-centric perfume brand Bond No. 9. Today Fashion Week Daily is reporting that Bond is partnering with Saks to create two fragrances especially for the retailer.
Called Saks Fifth Avenue for Her and Saks Fifth Avenue for Him, the fragrances mark the first time a specialty store like Saks has commissioned a perfumer to create its house blend. As for what they will smell like, FWD writes:
Saks Fifth Avenue for Her signals the return of the classic gardenia eau de parfum, given a chic contemporary twist with the addition of sparkling jasmine and vetiver, along with smooth vanilla. Saks Fifth Avenue for Him is an elegant aqua scent, containing an initial dash of Sicilian bergamot for coolness, followed by cardamom, amber, and cedarwood for warmth. Together, they are intended to capture the fashion-forward essence of 21st-century Saks, while at the same time expressing the eclectic downtown spirit of NoHo-based Bond No. 9.
The scents, which will be branded with both the Bond No. 9 and Saks logos, go on sale at Saks starting Sept. 1. A 1.7-ounce bottle will sell for $125, and a 3.4-ounce bottle will cost $185.
